In a note I posted on TAXACOM last week, I asked for information on the
correct authorship and bibliographic citation for the name Carex sect.
Shortianae. Should it be Carex sect. Shortianae L. H. Bailey or Carex sect.
Shortianae (L. H. Bailey) Kukenthal? When preparing the note, I misspelled
Bailey's name in one place, writing L. B. Bailey when I meant L. H. Bailey.
The question is not which Bailey, but where, when, and why Kukenthal made
the combination (if he did).

I would be pleased to receive information to help resolve this question.
